Dare To Wish Upon A Star

January 20th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

I’ve been giving ‘wishing’ some thought lately and it seems to me that wishes aren’t taken as seriously as they should be. So often, they’re dismissed as nothing more than delusional fantasies. And sometimes that’s just what they are.

But more often than not, wishes are really the seeds of intention. And intentions are the first step to the manifestation of anything. Looking at it this way, wishes are really how we create our world.

In the Tarot, directed intention is the Magician willing something new out of the ether, creating the world afresh. He’s the master of the Aces, pointing to the potential in every area of our lives. What he wishes becomes his will. What he wills becomes his world.

But wishing also seems to fall under the domain of the Star. She’s hope and optimism after a time of crisis. She helps us to refill, renew and dream of a beautiful future.

The Star encourages us to imagine beyond the world we already inhabit. With her on side, all things are possible. You just need faith, love and an openness to receive. Tell her your wishes, she wants to make them real.

“To Wish Upon a Star” – I’ve always liked that phrase. And it makes a lot of sense now.

To ‘wish’ is to be the Magician daring to look at the future, projecting into the universe our hopes, fears and intentions. And the ‘star’ is of course the Star. The one receiving the Magician’s prayers. She is the environment in which our dreams come true.

Miracles are made when the Magician and the Star come together. Dare to make one happen yourself.

Tarot Card of the Day – 1/20/11

Queen of Cups from Georgie's Tarot

Queen of Cups

Queen of Cups

The energy today is full of nurturance and love.  Let yourself give and receive.  Share your feelings, your dreams and what it is that makes you human.  Let your imagination run away with you (while holding on to reality if you can).

The Queen of Cups loves romance and laughter and beauty in all its forms.  Take a leap into your emotional depths.  Don’t be afraid, you won’t stay under too long.  This Queen understands emotional limits – how to push them and how to pull them back gently without hurting anyone’s feelings.

Today would be a great day to enjoy the company of loved ones. Or call or write them – one way or another, be sure they know you care.

You don’t know what’s coming next or from which direction it’s coming. Valour is important today. Stay true to yourself, firm in your stance and be prepared for anything and everything.

There will be a lot on the go and you’ll probably be tested. But if you keep your chin up, your back strong and take things one step at a time, the results will be well worthwhile. Stay strong – you’ve got it in you. And whether or not you know it, you’re in a position of strength.

#8 Justice from Georgie's Tarot

#8 Justice

Tuesday, January 18, 2011
#8 – Justice

Today’s themes are balance and justice.  It might be time to stand up or into your own authority by being strong, sure and most importantly, just.  This isn’t the time to play around and think you’ll get away with not doing your share.  On the other hand, if you do the work required, the Justice energy is happy to reward you.

Have you been playing fair?  It’s not so much about the mundane rules as it is about the bigger universal justice.  And it’s not necessarily about ‘work’ per se, but rather the energies that you’ve been putting out there.  Are you speaking up for what you believe in?  Are you taking responsibility for your own life?  Do you help others as you might expect them to help you?

What you send out is what you’re likely to get back.  This is karma in action and it’s generally quite profound.  On days when the Justice card appears, the karmic force is typically more obvious than usual.  Look around and see if you can find it.

Take time to rebalance yourself, and if possible, find some time to get out into nature.  It usually puts things into perspective pretty fast. Think carefully about your next move.  It’s what you’ve already done that has brought you to where you are now.  What you do next will determine what you’ll be reaping in your future.   Try to make it something good for everyone.

#19 – The Sun

You’ve made it!  Enjoy!  It feels great to be alive.  After the long journey you’ve finally managed to get to the other side of the night.  There’s no need to be shy – express yourself and let everyone see you smile.

You have confidence now and boundaries no longer pen you in.  Creativity carries you forward as if in a dream.  Focus your imagination and you can manifest what you will.  Be open, free and alive.

Let’s see you shine!

If you don’t mind a little horror with your Tarot readings, take a look at this short film from CARROLL Management Group NY/LA.

It was written and directed by Jesse James Rice and stars Lana Carter, Ethan Edwards, Derek Shorb and Jim Hansen.

Scary.

Queen of Swords from Georgie's Deck

The truth is an important commodity to you right now.  Getting through the fog and cutting out that which no longer works for you is priority.  You might be feeling a little hardcore, a little less sympathetic to sob stories and other tales of woe than usual.  That’s alright.  Sometimes it’s more important to be clear than to be sweet. 

Get the job done and do it with the determination, diligence and discernment that you expect from others.  Keep in mind though that the bigger picture includes compassion.  You need not be cruel or mean to be truthful and serious.  Not everyone is as tough-skinned as you are right now, so be aware of the potential effect your words might have.
